Noble Quran is not copied from Bible but Corrects biblical corruption

22 Evidences of biblical corruption and Noble Quran Corrects Bible mistakes

Noble Quran is not copied from bible but Corrects biblical corruption and restores Pure Gospel of Jesus in the form of Last and Final Testament “Al-Quran”

Scientific Comparison: Quran vs Bible

Point No 1:
Bible Says: The flat Earth is established and can never move?! The Sun hurries back to where it rises?! The Psalm 104:5 Psalm 93:1 Psalm 96:10 and Ecclesiastes 1:5 verses from the NIV Bible.

On the other hand Quran says: For those who would like to see the where in the Noble Quran does Allah Almighty say that the planets in space rotate and move, read the following Noble Verse:

“It is He who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, all (the celestial bodies) swim along, each in its orbit with its own motion. (The Noble Quran, 21:33)” so Quran is not copied from bible.

Point No 2:
Regarding ‘the Heavens’, the Bible says in Job, Ch. 26, Verse 11, that…‘The pillars of the Heaven will tremble.’ Qur’an says in Surah Luqman, Ch. 31, Verse No.10, Corrects that…‘The Heavens are without any pillars – Don`t you see? Don’t you see the Heavens are without any pillars? – Bible says heaven have got pillars. Where are those pillars? I could not see it nor the science. So, if you cannot see those biblical pillars then remember; Surely Quran was not copied from bible. Read more of this post

No. of Surahs in the Mushaf of Ibn Masud

Source: http://icraa.org/surahs-mushaf-ibn-masud/#_ftn14
=======================================================

Waqar Akbar Cheema

Abstract

One of the arguments used by Orientalist and Missionary critics of Islam to cast aspersions on Qur’anic preservation is related to the fact that the beloved companion of the Prophet Ibn Mas‘ood chose not to write three of the 114 surahs in his copy of the Qur’an. In order to understand why he made such a choice and if he considered these surahs part of the Qur’an, the evidence that discusses these issues must be examined. Throughout this presentation, it will be proved that Ibn Mas‘ood did in fact consider these surahs part of the Qur’an by the testimony of the same people who noted that he did not include them in his mushaf. After reading the explanations provided herein, there should be no doubt that Ibn Mas‘ood’s mushaf is in no way contradictory to the claimed impeccable preservation of the Noble Qur’an

1. Introduction

Some of those who tend to question the legitimacy of the claim of absolute preservation of Noble Qur’an often bring up the issue of surahs missing from Ibn Mas‘ood’s (d. 33 AH) mushaf.

2. Surahs missing in Ibn Mas‘ood’s mushaf

It is said that Ibn Mas‘ood’s mushaf (codex) did not have three surahs: al-Fatihah and al-mu’awwizatayn (al-Falaq and al-Nas), i.e. nos. 1, 113 and 114.[1]

We shall deal the issue of al-Fatihah and al-mu’awwizatayn separately. For each case we shall first see the reports forming the basis for the confusion and then probe further to discover the truth. Read more of this post

Claim: Islam Following Pagans Ritual

Wrong Claim!
Prophet Muhammad and Muslims following the religion of Abraham.


Say: “God has spoken the truth: FOLLOW, THEN, THE CREED OF ABRAHAM, who turned away from all that is false, and was not of those who ascribe divinity to aught beside God.”
Al-Imran (The Family of Imran) 3:95

And lastly, We have inspired thee, [O Muhammad, with this message:] “FOLLOW THE CREED OF ABRAHAM, who turned away from all that is false, and was not of those who ascribe divinity to aught beside God
An-Nahl (The Bee) 16:123

And who could be of better faith than he who surrenders his whole being unto God and is a doer of good withal, and FOLLOWS THE CREED OF ABRAHAM, who turned away from all that is false – seeing that God exalted Abraham with His love?
An-Nisa (The Women) 4:125

AND LO! We made the Temple a goal to which people might repair again and again, and a sanctuary: take then, the place whereon Abraham once stood as your place of prayer.” And thus did We command ABRAHAM and Ishmael: “PURIFY MY TEMPLE FOR THOSE WHO WILL WALK AROUND IT, AND THOSE WHO WILL ABIDE NEAR IT IN MEDITATION, AND THOSE WHO WILL BOW DOWN AND PROSTRATE THEMSELVES [IN PRAYER].”
Al-Baqara (The Cow) 2:125


 

‘Uthman Burns All Other Manuscripts, PEOPLE WERE PLEASED WITH HIS DECISION

Source: “History of Quranic Text” by M. M. Al Azami


With the task complete, the ink on the final copy dry, and duplicate copies dispatched, there was NO NEED FOR THE NUMEROUS FRAGMENTS OF THE QUR’AN CIRCULATING IN PEOPLE’S HANDS. So ALL SUCH FRAGMENTS WERE BURNED. Mus’ab bin Sa’d asserts that the PEOPLE WERE PLEASED WITH ‘UTHMAN’S DECISION; at the very least NO ONE VOICED ANY OBJECTIONS.” Other reports confirm this unanimous approval, INCLUDING ‘ALL BIN ABI: Talib who says,

By Allah, he did what he did with these fragments in the presence of us all [i.e. and none of us objected].


 

A Committee to Oversee the Task Makes an Independent Copy if the MUSHAF

i. Appointing a Committee of Twelve to Oversee the Task

The second account is somewhat more complex. Ibn SIrIn (d. 110 A.H.)

Reports,
When ‘Uthman decided to collect (~) the Qur’an, he assembled a committee of twelve from both the Quraish and the Ansar, Among them, were Ubayy bin Ka’b and Zaid bin Thabit.

The identities of these twelve can be pieced together from various sources. Al-Mu’arrij as-Sadusi states, “The newly-prepared Mushaf was shown to

(1) Sa’td b. al-‘A~ b. Sa’ld b. al-‘As
(2) Nafi’ b. Zuraib b. ‘Amr b. Naufal.” Others include
(3) Zaid b. Thabit,
(4) Ubayy b. Ka’b,
(5) ‘Abdullah b. az-Zubair,
(6) ‘Abdur-Rahman b. Hisham, and
(7) Kathir b. Aflah.” Ibn Hajar

Is Surah 5:32 only for the Jews?

Some Christians claim, surah 5:32 is not for Muslims but for the Jews only.

Quran 5:32
surah 5-32
SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.


Surah 5:32 is the continuation of surah 5:27 about the very First Killing in human history.

Quran 5:27 – 32

AND RECITE TO THEM THE STORY OF ADAM’S TWO SONS, in truth, when they both offered a sacrifice [to Allah ], and it was accepted from one of them but was not accepted from the other. Said [the latter], “I will surely kill you.” Said [the former], “Indeed, Allah only accepts from the righteous [who fear Him]. Read more of this post

“Dirham” in the time of Joseph?

Source: http://aqtthq.blogspot.com/2017/03/dirham-in-time-of-joseph.html


Christians claim, surah 12:20 mentions DIRHAM. There is no Dirham in time of Prophet Yusuf (A.S). So your Al-Qur’an contains error.


Al-qur’an 12:20
And they sold him for a very low price, a few dirhams (darahima), and they were, about him, of those keen to give up.

surah 12-20

(During the pre-Islamic era two weights, dinar and dirham, were USED TO WEIGH GOLD AND SILVER RESPECTIVELY. These names were also used for GOLD AND SILVER COINS)(So, if coins did not exist in the time of Joseph, but it was bullion, IT WAS WEIGHTED MEASURE, it agrees with the Qur’an, because DIRHAM WAS BULLION AS WELL, regardless of the currency with the same name. Bullions had standardized weights, likewise, dirhams had a specific weight, this enabled them to be counted, so this JUSTIFIES THE WORD “FEW” IN VERSE 12:20)(In regard to why the bullion is called “dirham”, instead of “Shekels”(which was used at the time of Joseph, according to the Bible): the Qur’an is in Arabic language (12:2), it is in the language of the Prophet’s people (Arabs) (14:4), SO THE USE OF DIRHAM (MEANING “WEIGHT/PIECES OF SILVER”) IS JUSTIFIED BECAUSE THE QUR’AN IS IN ARABIC LANGUAGE. The Bible mentions the number of twenty, while “twenty” is not said in the Qur’an, but “few”, which can denote that it is intended not to mention “Shekels”, but to mention a word in the language of the Arabs. And the use of the word “dirham” represents “WEIGHT/PIECES OF SILVER” IN GENERAL, regardless of the currency with the same name, so the Verse is also TRANSLATED AS “FEW SILVER COINS” or “FEW PIECES OF SILVER”, nevertheless, the root of “DARAHIMA” (dirhams) is “Dal-Ra-ha-Miim” and it means “DRACHMA; A WEIGHT; MONEY, CASH”, so because it also means “WEIGHT”, THERE IS NO ERROR IN THE QUR’AN)(According to Jeffery “the ultimate origin of the word dirham is from the Greek DRAKHMÉ” which “WAS A WEIGHT AND FINALLY A COIN”. Then, this confirms that the word dirham can refer to both weight and coin, due to its origin)(Allah knows best)

Consult with them about matters, then, when you have decided on a course of action, put your trust in God: God loves those who put their trust in Him? Quran 3:159

Following is list of 75 good manners that we can learn from the Glorious Quran:
